Doncaster Athletic Club Juniors (U20s) competed at Wigan last Sunday in a fixture to decide promotion to the Northern Premiership Division of the National Junior Athletic League.

With a smaller and younger team than usual, because of other national competitions and holidays, the club’s athletes stepped up to the mark and came a credible 4th to Liverpool, Kingdom and Scunthorpe, whilst beating Leeds and Spenborough.

Enthusiasm and team spirit shone through, filling the team’s coaches with optimism for their promotion battles next season.

Kelly Bramhald won the female athlete of the match award with her javelin throw.

Other notable personal bests were achieved by Papa Anthony (High Jump), Emma Nixon (Javelin) and Rachel Shaw ( 100m).
